Western Plains Opera Company’s mission is to blend the best of professional, community, and Minot State University resources to produce outstanding opera in the north central plains and to foster in local youths the love of good singing and good singing practices.
Western Plains Opera builds on established opera traditions that began with “”The Student Prince”” in 1976. As a small opera company with a growing reputation for outstanding performances, we provide an air of distinction for Minot’s artistic community, offering fully-staged productions, both opera and musical theatre, in Minot State University’s elegant Ann Nicole Nelson Hall. We engage professional principal singers, nationally acclaimed conductors, and innovative stage directors. The remaining cast, chorus, and orchestra participants are selected among Minot State University students, Minot State University Faculty, and surrounding community members. Furthermore, we are the sponsoring organization for the musicals and concerts of the Western Plains Children’s Chorus.
Tickets are available for upcoming productions via the company website. For all other inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
